I was just wondering if anyone had experience with door knocking in dense metro areas where:
a)there's a large population of renters (how do you differentiate if the home is owner or tenant occupied?)
and
b)most homes aren't SFR but condos that require you to be buzzed into a building to actually knock on a door.

Is it feasible to door knock in a big city? I'm trying to make plans for lead generation and was just wondering if anyone had any ideas, experience, or suggestions.

I'm in the middle of a (currently) 78-page thread that talks about cold-calling and door knocking - http://www.agentsonline.net/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/347898/1.html I'm only about a third of the way through, but it seems that it's actually easier to door knock in a city, as the distances are smaller, so you'd be way more efficient than out in the suburbs or the country, where the lots are huge.

I would guess that you'd have no idea about renters, so you'd have to count them as part of the doors on which you knock with no luck, and as for condos, once you get in for 1 unit, you'd be able to go to others (though I'm not sure if there may be some laws preventing you from doing that, you may want to check).

You can't door knock in condos, it is against the condominum act. No soliciting is allowed, but politicians are allowed to door knock. Go figure!

AAP, the rules in San Fran. may be different, the poster should check local rules to see if it works the same way...

You are probably right Canuck, I was addressing it you becuase i noticed that you live in the Toronto area. I really want to do condos, so I am figuring out how I can attract condo owners/buyers.

AAP, what about some sort of flyers/cards that you drop off at a condo building? I'm wondering whether condos have a communal mailbox on somewhere close to the entrance or if they have mail slots... You could go inside and leave a bunch of flyers (well written, of course, getting your point accross) next to the mailboxes... I know that this was often done in apartments, but condos might be different...

maybe just stick with mailings in condos. If you know a certain building is largley renters, then target them as buyers not sellers.

How can you find out how many renters there are in a building?
